Line-X'n....

ok, so ive decided this spring im prolly gonna sand down my bumper and my spare carrier, and when i get my new front bumper. and go have it all line-x'd. and i was wondering what you guys have payed to get some of yer stuff done.

id sand it and spray it myself againe...but thats **** never holds up and id like to have it pro. done. also do i have to sand it or will they?

also ive thought about roll'n on my own...but it would prolly turn out crap

I paid $400 For my entire bed over the rail to be done. What you are looking at having done has got to be Considerably cheaper. I would have it professionally sprayed, I did my last truck with an undercoating spraygun and some cheap spray bedliner and it just didn't hold up to what my Rhinoliner does. It was well worth the extra money

Mine was $400 for an over the rail liner. Expensive, but nothing you can do at home will hold up nearly as well. I have had mine for over a year and a half and it has held up very well. It is very scratch resistant, but if you do damage it there is a lifetime warranty.
